Tucked on a hillside, this stunning home affords gorgeous city views and plenty of natural light. The sun-drenched kitchen is stunning.
Remodel designed by Gusto Design Studio. Here’s what they say about this unique project:
A 1930’s contradiction. This is a unique house in that the front street facade is very traditional in its Arts & Crafts styling but the back side drops off and the house transitions into a 1930 modern aesthetic with large rhythmic plate glass windows and a curved bay window for amazing views to the east.
The homeowners favored the more traditional qualities of the original design but the duality gave us freedom to minimize the detailing so that it had a simplicity and lightness that complimented the modern flare of the house. The new staircase and railing is an example of finding that balance between traditional and the 30’s modern details.
Every inch mattered in this small compact, cliff-dwelling house so we used any void we could find to incorporate built-ins that maximized their storage.
